Create Your Own Bike Lane, For Real
Adam Stein, 7 Aug 09

This past winter, I wrote about LightLane, a concept design for a lighting system that paints a virtual path around your bike at night to encourage cars to keep a safe distance. The idea caught the Internet's imagination, so much so that it's soon going to be a real product:

The video is kind of cool, and I tend to think something like this actually could work. If I were a driver, I'd take the hint. More info at the LightLane web site.

Now maybe someone will get to work on that bike-based street chalker...

That's way cool! I wonder if works during daylight, too?

That's awesome! I get freaked out riding at night.

It doesn't look wide enough to me.
